A Complicated Transfer Design Method Based on Particle Swarm Optimization


Article Preview

Based on the simple transfer function design, this thesis presents a technology for complicated transfer function design. It converts complicated transfer function design problem into the fusing of several simple transfer function. The keystone is to formulate the transfer function fusing problem into searching for optimal fusing proportion, and to generate the new fusing proportion using a similarity evaluation method, which is based on expectation fitness. To a large extent, it simplifies the design process of complicated transfer function.
